Hollywood has a new sex symbol on its hands.

You may have seen him in several of his father's films -- from "Flags of Our Fathers" to "Gran Torino," but the 27-year-old son of legendary actor Clint Eastwood is striking out on his own.

Scott Eastwood -- who will star in "Fury," an upcoming World War II flick with Brad Pitt and surf drama "The Perfect Wave" -- channelled his father in a recent photo shoot for the October issue of "Town & Country" magazine.

Like his dad, "Dirty Harry" himself, the younger Eastwood has a penchant for rugged, manly acting roles.

"I want to be a man's man -- not a kid actor or a glitzy pop star but a no bulls*** leading man," he told the mag.

He also said that he's had to work hard despite his father's success and an actor and director.

"People assumed that I would have everything handed to me, but that couldn't be further from the truth," he said of his previous work as a bar-tender, construction worker and valet. "I was on my own just doing the grind."

He's also steered clear of the young Hollywood scene.

"I'm not a club kind of guy," he said. "Dive bars are much more my thing. They're no-nonsense."
